Metro College for Living, Working Curricula, 1975-76. Ongoing Classes for Developmentally Disabled Adults in the Denver Area.
Kreps, Alice Roelofs; Redden, Cora
This curriculum consists of fourteen courses based upon basic life problems which are designed to provide volunteers in the College for Living (CFL) program with materials to teach survival skills to developmentally disabled adults. CFL is intended to supplement residential programs in and around Denver and aid institutions in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. Each course consists of objectives, concepts, and appropriate activities for the volunteers to use. Management procedures for individualizing the curriculum include (1) pre-testing the students to determine the level at which they will enter the program, (2) selecting relevant materials for them at their individual levels to meet their needs, (3) post-testing, and (4) determining the level at which they will enter the next course. Topics for the courses include Keeping Healthy, Living Safely, Homemaking and Family Living, Understanding Oneself and Getting Along with Others, Understanding the Physical Environment, Appreciating and Creating Beauty, Being a Responsible Citizen, Leisure Time, Earning a Living, Traveling, Money Management, Human Sexuality, Communicating Ideas, and Field Trips and Extended Experiences. (A volunteer training workshop packet and individual course guides are available separately. See note.) (YLB)
